f you’re thinking of listing your home this spring, there are a number of steps you can take right now to ensure you’re prepared for when the ‘For Sale’ sign hits your lawn.
ften, the most overlooked step when selling a home is the importance of hiring a qualified real estate agent. You want to use someone you can trust who’s familiar with the nuances of the area where you’re currently living, as well as someone who’s in the business full time. You want to know that your agent can help prepare your home for sale in a reasonable timeframe and at an optimal price.
enerally speaking, the spring months (March, April & May) are the months that sellers will receive top dollar for their homes.
here are several things that should be examined before selling your home. Because we sell homes every day, we can walk with you through your home and quickly pinpoint areas for improvement and/or repair.
ainting, cleaning and decluttering are just a few examples of low-cost preparations you can undertake to set your home up for a successful sale. After all, first impressions are critical when selling your home. Taking extra time and effort to prepare your home – and keep it looking its best for each showing – truly will pay off.
Pricing your home correctly
he most important factor that determines whether a home sells or remains on the market is pricing. That’s why it’s essential to price your home correctly from the onset.
e understand Milton neighbourhoods and surrounding areas, which helps us price effectively. It’s impossible to truly know whether you’re pricing a home accurately without checking comparable sales. This includes looking at ‘sold’ prices and not just list prices for similar properties. We dig even deeper by ensuring the listed comparables are, in fact, similar in terms of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage and so on.
omes that are staged typically show better, which can lead to a quicker sale.
Maximizing space, lighting and neutrality are key areas where staging can improve your chances of selling your home more quickly and at a great price.
